Nine is the best number

I’ve always loved the number 9, 
My favourite number of all time.
It makes me feel happy,
Not a little bit sappy,
As I sip tea with lemon and lime.

Stupid limerick. Not my best poem, believe me. 

But here’s a post why I love the number nine. If I had a spirit number, it would be nine.

·        999. In the UK, the number 9 literally saves lives. Dial nine three times and you’ve saved a life. Now the rest is up to the doctors.
·        Cats have 9 lives. Cats are my favourite animal, and they have the number of lives that equates to nine, making nine my favourite number of all time.
·        All digits in the nine times table equate to nine. 9, 18, 27, 36, 45, 54, 63, 72, 81, 90...isn’t that amazing? What other number has that? 1+8 makes 9, 2+7 makes 9, and etc. So cool.
·        The Beatles have a song about the number nine. Dedicated to this terrific number. Number 9...number 9...number 9...REVOLUTION NUMBER 9 BECAUSE 9 IS THE NUMBER OF REVOLUTION!
·        It rhymes with time, lime and mine. It also rhymes with the word rhyme, and dime and thyme and rose wine. Isn’t that something? Such a lovely sounding word, nine. Aesthetically pleasing to the ear. Be mine!

And there are some reasons I love the number 9. Thanks for reading this dumb post; hope you had a good time!
